Camping on the Beach

We took advantage of the four day weekend by spending one night on the beach. Bryan was such a trooper. He was at MS camp from Tues-Thur... then was okay to head back out camping on Friday. We packed up in the morning, and headed out. After a quick stop at Subway for lunch we made it out to the beach.
 Jack and Bryan spent a long time building this hotel ;o)

 We made campfire cheeseburgers for the first time in the pie cooker and Jack approved!
 The beach was a popular place to spend the weekend!

 The boys spent a long time digging a hole big enough for Bryan to get in.

Wet Egg Hunt and Beautiful Afternoon

Yesterday we had out annual moms groups Easter party and egg hunt. We've had a run of bad weather over the years and yesterday was no exception ;o)  Next week many of our moms will have their husbands home for spring break, so we had our outing this week. It was dry on the way to the park... rained while we did activities under the cover, dry for the egg hunt {yeah!} and then POURED as I was coming home.. whew!!! My boys seem to be at the worst when I am in charge {or partially in charge} of an event... mmmmm, not fun...

today of course was beautiful! Not a cloud in the sky. We were able to enjoy a fun afternoon outside with friends!

Grandma and Grandpa Visit

We were so blessed to have Grandma and Grandpa Thompson visit this past week. It was Spring Break week for Bryan and Jack and so was the perfect week for a visit. The weather was amazing and we did something fun everyday. 
 We went to Macau to see the old Spanish part of Town, have lunch by the beach and see the amazing House of the Dancing Waters show.

 We spent some time in the Mong Kok Markets
 Ate a big pizza
 Rode the Star Ferry
 Ate lunch in Sai Kung after the guys went golfing

 Spent an afternoon at the beach. Had a lovely lunch and the boys went crazy in the sand.

Field trip to the farm {or garden}

Jack's class at school has been studying gardens/farms for the last month and today they took a field trip to a "farm". To me it was more of a garden, but the kids had a blast... so it doesn't really matter what it was called. We took a bus from school WAY up north in Hong Kong almost to China, then had to walk about 15 min through a few villages until we came to our destination. The boys were all in the Leaf Vein Fossil group so we started with that activity, then did a few other gardening activities. It was all in Cantonese, and I had a hard time focusing, but the kids did okay. They had a blast and came home filthy, so that's what matters! ;o)
